March 5, 2009
March snowfalls are becoming quite common.
The latest one struck Saturday afternoon, actually February 28, and then more arrived early Sunday morning, March 1.
I’d been watching the weather for a day or two – knowing I was heading to Jackson Saturday morning for the Mississippi High School Activities Association State Tournament. Our H.W. Byers girls were meeting Scott Central in the Class 2A semi-finals.
Close to Nowhere
“Cats” & quilts
• This past Saturday, my daughter and I took Meredith, Remy and Grace to Northwest Community College drama department’s production of “Cats.”
We’d not been to any type of production or program at NWCC since Dana graduated from nursing school there.
My youngest granddaughter Remy about half the time thinks she is a cat. The other half of the time she’s pretending to be a cat. She is a cat magnet and loves them beyond reason.
The Preacher’s Corner
Faith, hope and love. And the greatest is love
I have been thinking a lot lately about what can be called “the tyranny of possessions.” The current economic collapse shows how ephemeral these things can be. Jesus evidently knew this, for when he sent out disciples to preach, he charged them, “Take nothing for your journey, no staff, nor bag, nor bread, nor money; and do not have two tunics” (Luke 9:3). To paraphrase the first chapter of Job, we brought nothing into this world, and we can take nothing with us when we leave. Except character.
Garbage powered cars not too far in the future?
I drive a 1965 reddish-orange Mustang. People ask me when I got it restored and are surprised when I reply, “Never. I’ve owned it since I was 15. I’ve just always kept it up.”
New cars are all the same to me. They all drive like you’re sitting on a couch, then they fall apart. Way too many electronic gizmos to fail. The 1965 Mustang is built to last. Nothing on it that can’t be fixed with basic tools.
Letters to the Editor
Thanks Dr. Williams:
A couple of weeks ago husband Harvey suffered severe shortness of breath. Dr. Kenneth Williams, of Williams Medical Clinic here, diagnosed congestive heart failure, and called his Memphis cardiologist who said he should report to the Memphis hospital where he has been treated for years for various heart-related ailments.
